  • Activate your Email/Network Account
    If you haven't already, registered students can get their email account and access to AU's computer network. Email is the main form of communication on campus so be sure to setup your account and get in the habit of checking it often.
  • Submit Required Health Forms
    Complete and return to AU Health Services at the Wellness Center for your Medical History, Immunization Record, and Physical Examination Form to avoid having difficulty moving into your residence hall room or registering for classes. These forms include proof of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella. There is also a form to be signed indicating the student has either received vaccinations for the Meningoccal Meningitis, or have made an informed choice to decline vaccination.

    All required documents must be received by July 15th or a hold will be placed on your student account.
  • Claim Health Insurance
    It is the expectation of Alfred University for all students to have their own health insurance. All student athletes and international students are mandated to have health insurance. If you don't currently have health insurance, follow the link above to shop around for a plan that fits you.
